Biographical or Historical Information

The Woman's Auxiliary to the Nacogdoches County Medical Society was formed on April 18, 1927 as a group belonging to the Woman's Auxiliary to the American Medical Society. The object of the auxiliary, as described in the 1930 year book, is to extend the aims of the medical profession through the wives of the doctors to the various woman's organizations, which look to the advancement to health and education; to assist in entertainment at state, district and county society meetings; to promote acquaintanceship among doctor's families, that local unity and harmony may be increased. Membership was open to the wives, mothers and daughters of all members of the Nacogdoches County Medical Association in good and regular standing.
